Meanwhile, Yoon Sang admitted that it is not easy to choose which among the k-pop songs are loved by the two countries.

K-pop singers are to perform in North Korea for the first time in nearly 15 years.

In 1985, South Korean musicians held their first concert in Pyongyang as part of cultural inter-Korean exchanges. Officials in Seoul said North Korea also proposed talks between its leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump.

The visitors will hold two shows in Pyongyang, one at the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre, which was the backdrop to a landmark performance by the New York Philharmonic in 2008.
